Hi Paula,

Sorry to be such a pest but you did say you read all your e-mail plus post the show's electronic address on the screen at the end.

Couple quick points:

(1) Regarding last night's segment, THE NEED FOR WEED

(i) We're not Philadelphia lawyers at CyberSmokeBlog but when you asked one of your guests whether she smoked marijuana are you prepared on live television for a reciprocal query? Invoking the Bill Clinton defence might work best

Your Producers might wish to reference the April 16, 2007 Winnipeg Free Press article, "Health Canada Marks Up Medical Marijuana 1,500%" available from our ARCHIVES under "Economics 101 - "How Monopolies work!"

(2) THE FBI's MOST WANTED

(i) Your guest neglected to mention The Departed for which Director Martin Scorsese finally won a long overdue Academy Award was based on the life of James J. "Whitey" Bulger played by Jack Nicholson












James J. Bulger

Wanted for his role in numerous murders (18 counts) committed from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s in connection with his leadership of an organized crime group that allegedly controlled extortion, drug deals, and other illegal activities in the Boston, Massachusetts, area. He has a violent temper and is known to carry a knife at all times. He was once the boss of Boston's Winter Hill Gang before he went into hiding. (www.wikipedia.org)

(3) DON IMUS CONTROVERSY

(i) Reverend Al Sharpton yesterday lead a demonstration past New York's four largest record companies urging Rap/Hip Hop artists to tone down their songs' lyrics

Finally, Wednesday's (May 2, 2007) version of The Verdict was outstanding! On the subject of DNA, a debate is currently raging in the United States between police agencies and the judicial system which many legal observers are already predicting will eventually end on the doorstep of The Supreme Court. It involves "near" genetic matches. More about it shortly. The expanding Dr. Charles Smith story also raised several very troubling issues.
